PIXMA G5020 on MAC - How do I add/access different media types?!

Occasional Contributor

Does anyone know how to get the G5020 to "see" different media types on Mac OS? I only ever see the following media types:


- Auto

- Envelope

- Photo

- Plain Paper


Doesn't matter which print dialog I use (app-specific or system), there's no way to add/edit, and there are no additional options. 


I've updated drivers, re-installed software, and done everything else, but I simply cannot add/find/access additional media types.


I've read somewhere on the forums that these are the only media types available via AirPrint, but even when I connect the printer directly to my Mac via USB… that's all I get. 


It's super-limiting and (I feel like) it's preventing me from taking full advantage of the quality capability of the printer.


Any help or insight you can provide is greatly appreciated!
